Heat Pumps: Features & Benefits
Heat pumps (ducted and non-ducted) are versatile, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems. If you’re considering an upgrade or replacement system for your home, here are a few of the features and benefits these HVAC systems provide:
Heating and Cooling:
Heat pumps provide both heating and cooling functions in a single unit ensuring perfect comfort all year-round. In colder months, a heat pump pulls heat from the outdoor air and transfers it indoors, and in warmer months, it pulls heat out of indoor air to cool your home.
When compared with traditional HVAC systems, heat pumps are among the most energy-efficient heating and cooling options available for lower utility bills. Heat pumps do not use fossil fuels helping to reduce a home’s carbon footprint as well.
Advanced heat pumps have variable-speed compressors which allow the unit to adjust its output based on the heating or cooling needs of the home. This delivers precise temperature and humidity control with efficient energy management.
Heat pump systems can be zoned to deliver heating and cooling to specific areas of your home independently for enhanced comfort and lower energy costs.
Heat pumps are known for their quiet operation, making them ideal for any room and any situation. Select Carrier heat pump models include a compressor sound blanket that reduces noise and their two-stage models take sound levels even lower with extra-quiet, low-stage operation.
